The Rugged Shark® brand began life as a single boat shoe designed to bring marine footwear into the 21st Century. While technology was changing the face of all manner of consumer products, marine footwear was stagnant. The shoes available to boaters and fishermen were thin-soled moccasin-styles that were hard on the wearer’s feet and only modestly effective on wet surfaces.
Along the way Rugged Shark went from being a shoe to becoming an outdoor footwear brand. Fishermen and boaters who tried our Atlantic™ shoe styles and Marlin™ shoes fell in love with the performance and comfort of boat shoes that made their feet feel good—all day long!
Today, Rugged Shark is focused on combining cutting edge design with the latest advances in component materials in a growing stable of footwear to meet a wide variety of outdoor uses. Whether you fish, boat or just enjoy the outdoors and like comfortable casual shoes: Try on a pair of Rugged Shark shoes. (You just might never take them off! )
